Bob Dylan Drops Another New Single, “False Prophet,” Announces First Album of New Music in Eight Years Set for June 19th


Bob Dylan — I wonder if he knew today was the 55th anniversary of his famous video for “Subterranean Homesick Blues.” At midnight he sent out the news of a third new single– “False Prophet”– and his first new album of original music called “Rough and Rowdy Days.” It’s set for June 19th release. Dylan’s last album of new songs was 2012’s “Tempest.” The new album will contain the two recent singles, the 17 minute long “Murder Most Foul,” and “I Contain Multitudes.” On the CD, “Murder Most Foul” will be a second CD unto itself.

“False Prophet” is a stompin’ blues number with some great gruff Dylan vocals and sweet guitar. It’s a balm for a day that sees some other, far less interesting releases.
